Kim Jones presented his final Louis Vuitton runway show on Thursday, with super models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss both dressed in glazed monogram raincoats and high-shine hiking boots surprisingly appeared at the runway.
“It’s about clothes that can change, about fabrics that can travel on the body – and transform,” Jones wrote in the show notes. “Discovering something new. A constant voyage.”
Sportswear was the key for this collection such as the genius patchwork monogrammed leggings, formed from technical fabrics and printed with lava, craters and reflective monograms; the cowboy-hiker boots with luxurious python skin and Louis Vuitton-embossed monogram, baseball tees and mountaineering active wear - which all spoke to the brands rooted heritage in travel.
Coats with glossy fabrics, metallic effects and ashy palette of mineral tones, fully showed luxurious tailoring and upscale craftsmanship.
Kim Jones waved goodbye. But it's never a destination; it's always a journey.
